UHHH, WHAT'S THAT AGAIN?

I took speech in college. I was also captain of our debate team, which led the state one year.

In speech class we were taught NOT to use "uhh" in our speeches. We were told its use made it look as though we were trying to think of some way to express or alter our next thought.

"Uhhh" indicated that we were unsure of ourselves. Besides, it was distracting to the audience.

In fact, we got points off for using "uhhh," "look," "you know" and "now."

Turns out our professor was wrong.

Our leader, the most eloquent president since Abraham Lincoln, shows us how it should be done.

SDHV: What I like is his eloquence. He reminds me a lot of Mel Tillis.

Ducky's here said...

Are we talking about Obamas dismal foreign policy?...no.

----
Dismal? He had Hillary put the fix in in Egypt and told those ragheads in no uncertain terms that they better not do anything that bothers Israel.

I would expect you and Joe would be thrilled.

Many of us forget that this is the same man who, upon receiving the nomination to run for President of the USA, immediately removed the American Flag from his campaign plane and replaced it with his own Obama logo. How can anyone be surprised at his actions. He has said that "the constitution is a document of NEGATIVE rights". We had all better pray hard that he is only in office for another 376 days. Beyond that, we're toast.

A little unrelated but condradictory just the same

I'd say the President must be doing a FANTASTIC job if your only criticism is that he doesn't adhere to the speech patterns of a 1950's high school debate team.

How’s that Hopey-Changey Thing Working Out for Ya? said...

We conservatives know that what the president did is illegal, and the Liberials know it also, except they are too damn stubborn or stupid to even care. But they sure knew how to criticize President Bush.

Look, it's as simple as this, this country can't survive with this self appointed dictator at the helm. So we mus do what's right and ditch him like we did with Carter.

UHHH?

Joe, is this one of the pressing issues of our day?

Lisa said...

'Joe, is this one of the pressing issues of our day?'

yes it is Ducky it's part of the vetting process the media hid in the 2008 about the most articulate and smartest man in the room .

MMMMM,MMMMMM,MMMMM..........

Joe said...

XO: "...if your only criticism is that he doesn't adhere to the speech patterns of a 1950's high school debate team."

Told you you couldn't read.

You think I've never have criticized President BO (the child president) before.

Z said...

Ducky, why not start your own blog instead of telling us what to post? thanks.

Joe, this does show a lot..unless you're in love with the guy and blind.
I can't hear "the notion that..." ONE more time from him.

Of course, Bush was horrible on teleprompter but he did very well without notes...go figure.

The Sergeant is right...we need a Woodward and Bernstein, but the leftist journalists aren't curious anymore unless they can malign a conservative...and the conservative messengers get killed before their truths can be appreciated.
scary times. Welcome to Pravda.

Joe said...

Z: Ducky is not smart enough to blog.

His only ability is to tear down.

When I do public speaking, I work from an outline. Just the main thoughts, from which I am able to speak full sentences and illustrate.

If I had to read a speech, it would flow OK, and it would have good inflections, but it would sound a bit stirile.

Take away all of my notes and (besides not having a song)I would ramble.

Different people have different abilities.

President BO (the child president) has few.

Xavier Onassis said...

Lisa - "...it's part of the vetting process the media hid in the 2008..."

YES!!! The Liberal Media selectively edited every speech O'Bama gave to remove the "uhh"s because they knew what a DEVASTATING BLOW that would be to his candidacy!

You people are grasping at straws.

Romney doesn't have a Mormon's Prayer of beating O'Bama.

All y'all need to take a deep breath and pace yourselves if you want to avoid having a stroke in the next 5 years.

Lets all sing it together: To the tune of Sam Cook's
What a wonderful world.

Don't know much about the Constitution,
Just talking sh*t, fomenting revolution,
Don't know much about economy,
Just spend your money on my friends and me,
But I do know that I love me,
and if I fool enough to vote for me,
What a wonderful world it will be

And yet these cowardly leftist gutless wonders in Congress not only agree, bur support every damned thing that this presided does and stands for, they are a bunch of limp-wristed surrender monkeys who refuse to honor their own Oaths of Office and do right by the very people who put them into office. It’s Disgraceful.
We the people have reaped the seeds we have sown.. The leftist, Progressive movement like our friend Shaw and he Ilk elected a president who was not vetted properly, if he was at all; they were not critical of a media that is on a road to socialism; listening to the generalities of Congress with no specific policy just good politics but bad policy, and enslaving a nation in debt through reckless spending. So now we have it. So now we are stuck with a socialistic idiot and the lefties don’t give a crap about it, in fact they support him. All I hear all this about "trampling the constitution" seems to come from the Right, the Progressives couldn’t care less about it. As I said, they even support it! Just read what these Lid's here say, they refuses to recognize what’s going on. These rabid, brain-dead Progressive morons particularly the one with the progressive blog can't seem to see the big picture.

All of these little gnat-like creatures are screwing up our country. These people turn to blogging, because they failed at their other professions. The bloggers mentioned above, Tweedle-dumb does nothing but insult every republican she can, and these are the ones responsible for putting the Chief of Kenya into our White House! And that the real problem we have to deal with, the little pea brain just can't grasp the fact that we are dealing with a Socialist who is hell bent on destroying America.

Leticia said...

He's a broken record. Time to toss it out or rather him out.

Lone Ranger said...

He's concentrating on suppressing his Kenyan accent.

Joe said...

Blogger is angry with me about my criticisms a couple of posts ago. Now I can't post my Sunday Respite!

Libs are whiners said...

The stonewalling by Attorney General echoes what happened with Nixon, but this time the mainstream media is struggling to cover everything up instead of seeking, 'what did Obama know and when did he know it?

Xavier Onassis said...

OMG PULEEZE!

Watergate??? Seriously???

Nixon's cronies ordered a criminal breaking and entering of an opponent's office to steal stuff.


That's a clear felony!

Obama/Holder just told that idiot Issa to STFU.

Not even CLOSE to being the same thing.

Dream on!

Uhhhh...He does it on purpose. He thinks it will make him appear thoughtful.

If you pay attention, you will notice it is a common habit among "intellectuals".
